Sausage Stuffed Banana Peppers

In the summer, I like to stock up on hot banana peppers. Aren't they pretty??? They are so good chopped up in sauces, roasted in a little olive oil, sauteed with onions for hot sausage sandwiches, or stuffed and baked.
Our favorite is to stuff them with a mixture of hot turkey sausage, cheeses, and spices...cover them with marinara sauce and baked them until they are bubbly and delicious.

Here's my recipe, well sort of. Its one of things that I toss together, I don't really measure.
Sausage Stuffed Banana Peppers in Marinara Sauce
(Source: me!)

4 banana peppers (washed, topped trimmed, sliced open, and seeds/ribs removed)
2 links of hot Italian sausage, casings removed
1/3 C Italian cheese blend (parmesan, asiago, romano)
1 tsp minced garlic
salt, pepper
1 C marinara sauce
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix sausage, cheese and spices and mix until just blended. Divide evenly between peppers. Place peppers in a baking dish, sprayed with cooking spray. Top with marinara sauce. Cover loosely with foil and bake for 30-45 minutes, or until bubbly.
